Core Courses (9 Credits)


Each student will take three core courses (9 credits). These courses will cover 1) anatomy, physiology, and biophysics, covering essential knowledge of living systems needed in Biomedial Engineering (BME), 2) applied mathematics and statistics, covering skills needed in more advanced BE courses, 3) a choice of two courses - bioinstrumentation or biomechanics, which serve to provide core knowledge related to the physics and engineering behind advances in BME.

Electives from Other Departments


Below are courses from other departments that can count as electives. Students may choose up to 6 credits from the list below. Other courses are possible with advisor approval.

Experiential Learning (6-9 Credits)


For the completion of the culminating experience, all students will be required to participate in 6-9 credits of experiential learning, which can be as a thesis project, or a combination of other project or internship courses. Our core department faculty, augmented by associated faculty from across NYU, and especially the NYU School of Medicine, can serve as advisors for research projects, including M.S. thesis work (6-9 credits), as well as single-semester guided independent study or research projects (3 credits each), and external internships (1.5 credits each). Students select their culminating experience from the following options:

Required Colloquium and Seminar


All M.S. students will be required to attend the department colloquium series each semester, where outstanding visiting scholars will present lectures on the state of the art in Biomedical Engineering. All students will be required to participate for two semesters in the student seminar series, in which students gain experience in research
communication.
